Accelerator-Based Human Activity Recognition Using Voting Technique with NBTree and MLP Classifiers

Muhammad Sufyian Mohd Azmi, Md Nasir Sulaiman


In evolution and ubiquitous computing systems, accelerometer-based human activity recognition has huge potential in a large number of application domains. Accelerometer-based human activity recognition aims to identify physical activities performed by human using accelerometer; a sensor device attached to the body and returns an actual valued estimate of acceleration along the x-, y- and z-axes from which the sensor location can be estimated. In this study, an accelerator-based activity recognition model using voting technique was proposed. Two machine learning classifiers, Naïve Bayes Tree (NBTree) and Multilayer Perceptron (MLP), were used as ensemble classifiers in the voting technique. To evaluate the proposed voting technique, the performance of selected individual classifiers and existing voting technique was first examined, followed by the experiment to determine the performance of the proposed model. All of the experiments were performed using a standard dataset called Wireless Sensor Data Mining involving six physical human activities; jogging, walking, walking towards upstairs, walking towards downstairs, sitting and stand still. Results showed that the proposed voting technique with NBTree and MLP ensemble classifiers outperformed other individual classifiers and another previously suggested voting technique for accelerometer-based human activity recognition.
